Mobfactions are groups of mobs of many varieties that all have a knowledge
and like or dislike of each other. Some help players but most do not. Some
like each other and others do not. It is the interaction between
mobfactions that makes the game as dynamic as possible. Almost every game
is run by scripts. They use scripts to load monsters and scripts to run
monsters. Mobfactions are a totally new game design concept.
How they are created: The DM keeps track of every aspect of a party's
adventure, which is sadness, happiness, pride, and fear. It attempts to
understand how your party is feeling by watching everything that happens.
A FORMATION of players is a party. A SHIP is a party. A CLANTOWN is a party.
It attempts to balance happiness vs sadness, proud vs fear, and many other
emotional connections. If you are sad it sends help. If you are too proud
it makes life harder. If you are not afraid something is wrong. If you are
not happy you must be bored so it takes care of that as well. Each sector
of the world map (100x100) is also tracked in this way.
Each campaign that runs mobfactions has its emotional state tracked. All
of this information is used by the master DM to make sure everyone is
having a good adventure. The DM knows how you are doing, how local people
or ships are doing, how the local area as a whole is doing, and finally how
the mobfactions themself are feeling. When you play Medievia in the
wilderness or on the open seas, the DM is watching!
As you can see, mobfactions are not loaded by some script, or timer, or
any other 'cheat'. They are made in the same way and for the same reasons
a player DM at a tabletop role playing game would make them, and
are adjusted on the fly, as adventures progress.
